SPRING / SUMMER 2017 NEWSLETTER




Introduction:
The next few months are the best months of year for the Canada355 community.  Not only because the weather is starting to get warmer and the sun is starting to shine, not only because of the shows, meets and mudding available.  But because in the next few months Canada355 will be hosting a couple of very big events, one is the 9th Annual Western Canada Super Meet and the other is a BBQ / Show n Shine fundraiser in support of The Greater Edmonton Animal Rescue Society - GEARS which is an organization dedicated to helping & protecting animals.

The first event will be taking place June 2nd-4th in Jasper, Alberta and it's not too late to attend. The 9th Annual Western Canada Super Meet only comes once a year, it is a fun filled weekend, consisting of show n shine, group dinner at the Jasper Brewing Company, with the ability to mod if needed cause this is the time to get all the help you need, awards and raffle prizes and lots of shenanigans and memories to be made. Click HERE for more details regarding this years 9th Annual Western Canada Super Meet.

The second event will be a BBQ / Show n Shine happening on Saturday, May 13th from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm at the Rock-N-Wash in Edmonton, Alberta to help raise money and collect donations in support of The Greater Edmonton Animal Rescue Society - GEARS which is an organization dedicated to helping & protecting animals. Make sure to bring some money because you'll be able to purchase raffle tickets for $10 each to possibly win some very nice prizes. There will be a local food truck on site, Mr. Chimi Churri - The Argentinian Barbeque King, helping us out with the barbeque.
